Today we're skipping #FossilFriday in favor of Fossorial Friday!
A fossorial animal is one that's adapted to digging and lives primarily underground. Think badgers, moles, ants, earthworms, and even clams. 🐜
If the two words seem similar it's because they both come from the same Latin word "fossa," which means "ditch."
Cue to ditch the rest of this day and get fossorial, Y/N? 😴
Kidding. We would never! 😉
